2. Butter lettuce
If you’re not quite ready for kale yet, consider butter lettuce. This smooth lettuce is deliciously decadent and doesn’t taste overly healthy. It’s a perfect addition to a sandwich, or even as a salad base on its own. Butter lettuce is filled with an important antioxidant called beta-carotene and a phytochemical called lutein. Both of these are key in preventative measures against degenerative diseases.
There are so many different kinds of mushrooms. We love a succulent portobello, or a hearty mushroom soup on a chilly day. Mushrooms are essentially an inflammation-decreasing superfood, and they’re robust in flavor – enough to be compared to a meat! They’re also packed with prebiotics, which feed the microbiota in your intestines and promotes healthy digestion.
